Until you find the right partner, you need to completely enjoy the perks of being single which many of us fail to realize
Rejoice that you are single and again I say, rejoice! There is no need to rush to date or be with someone just because almost everyone around you has a partner and you are feeling left out. Even though there will be times when you might feel a little sad when you see couples being cozy with each other and you don’t have someone by your side, the perks of being single are too many and we often fail to value them. So, here we have come up with 10 amazing things about being single, to remind you of your privileged status.
1. ’You’ time:
Trust me, if you are in a relationship you won’t get enough time for yourself. Being single will help you spend time on self-improvement. There is nothing like knowing more about your inner self. It will help you in becoming a better version of yourself and not what others want you to become.
2. Financial savings:
When you are single, you don’t have to go to restaurants or coffee shops for dates. You also don’t have to spend money on buying gifts and organizing any special event on valentine’s day. You can save a lot of money just by not doing the regular, normal things people do while dating.
3. You are the decision maker:
When you are not in a relationship, you can always be responsible only for yourself and your decisions won’t affect others. So, whether it be going to different cities or countries for work or career changes or anything for that matter, you can do it all without having to worry whether it might affect your partner or if he/she would be happy with your decisions.
4. Don’t have to share your favorite food:
Your favorite food is all yours and you don’t have to share it with anyone. You can have that last piece of cheese pizza without feeling guilty of being selfish. Just thinking about it feels good, right?
5. No burden of pleasing someone:
You don’t have to try to please your partner to the extent of doing things which you wouldn’t do if it wasn’t for him/her. And most importantly, you don’t have to get involved or try to please his/her family even when they are not accommodating you or treating you right.
6. Lazy time:
Weekends are like heaven to you. You can get some more sleep time and you can laze around doing nothing. You don’t have to make plans to meet someone and then keep thinking about what to wear, how to get ready, etc.
7. No heartache:
No relationship means no breakup. No breakup means no heartache. You can have all the fun you always wanted to have. The roller coaster of emotions and the time you take to recover from that bad breakup aches your heart so much. You can be so at rest if you are not in a relationship.
8. You are the boss in your house:
Home is a comfortable space where you want to relax whenever you feel like it. If you are sharing your space with your partner, you’ll have to adjust the room temperature or turning on/off the light when one of you sleeps, etc., according to the mutual interest. But if you are single, you can always have your space to your self and make household decisions all on your own.
9. Spend more time with friends:
People who are in relationship often tend to make less time for their friends. When there is any outing planned, you might have to ask for the permission of your partner and keep his interests in mind and act accordingly. But when you are single, you can spend some good fun time with your friends.
10. Be more self-reliant
Being single will make you do many things by yourself like paying bills, buying groceries and taking care of any household necessities. It will help you become more confident about yourself and be more self reliant.
Rushing into a relationship, most of the time, only makes you miserable. Wait till you find the right person and then you’ll know why it’s worth the wait. Always keep in mind the perks of being single and make the most of your single time. When you get into a relationship, you’ll surely miss the time when you were single. So, just be happy and treat yourself right because that is what is more important.
